Training Outing

On the weekend of May 20-22 the troop went camping at Anderson County Park on Lake Norris. The purpose of the outing was to educate the scouts (we have a lot of new boys) on patrol structure, leadership, and how the troop functions. We also went over basic skills such as how to setup a tent to stay warm and dry in bad weather, and basic backpacking skills. The training sesisions only took up about half of the day so the rest of the weekend will was free time for the boys to just have fun camping. They fished in Norris Lake and several scouts went for a swim becasue the fish were not biting.
